in some states trying to get the message for him. bill clinton is continues with the florida event. president obama probably made the right call to come back. it wouldn't look good if he continued with that event down in florida if people are pounded by rain. all attention will be on this storm for a while, especially on the east coast, so he has a chance to get out there and be in front of the cam ras. we don't want to talk aboutfall politics in a natural disaster, but it will give him a chance to respond and look presidential. >> mitt romney had to cancel three events in virginia. the latest poll out of the state. he's closing the gap, although the president still has a four-point lead. how do you proceed if you're mitt romney? he doesn't have an official role, so is whatever he does open to criticism, or is it -- do you even morph through a political lens? where does mitt romney play through all of this. >> he can campaign in states not adversely affected by the storm. he can stay in ohio. i don't think there was any downside to spend more time in ohio and put in homilies in the

the storm's progress while former president, bill clinton, does the event solo. early voting, by the way, opened on saturday in florida and with some waiting hours to cast ballots, but are the lines long enough for the democrats to overcome the republicans' absentee voter advantage in the state? think snowbirds. >> early voting started this weekend. i understand you guys blew it out when it came to early voting. whoever is able to get their voters out, you know, they're the ones who are going to win florida. we win florida, we win this election. >> i need you to vote early. i need you to get out and vote. we need to make sure that we win this one. it counts. >> florida congresswoman debbie wassermann schultz chairs the democratic national committee. she is sitting somewhere that is unfamiliar to me because you have sunlight behind you and blue skies. that is not something we have here on the east coast. >> right. >> let me just start with the president's decision. basically, does he regret even flying down to orlando last night? is that the takeaway we should have from him deciding this

and mika are hosts of "morning joe." >> one thing we do know, bill clinton is going to be very nervous about having to fill all that space by himself today without barack obama. he's going to do great in orlando, obviously. but mitt romney had momentum. you look at ohio, ohio poll that came out, had him dead locked. minnesota poll, three. gets the endorsement from "des moines register." in that state that's a big deal. this is mitt romney's best weekend and it stops. the momentum stops. you don't know how it freezes the race but you certainly know that it's a new dynamic into the race and it changes everything with a week to go. >> the question is how. a lot of people have different theories which candidate it benefits. ate moment for the president to be commander-in-chief, to be presidential, but there are pitfalls with that. >> it sure is. there are pitfalls because something could go wrong and people could maybe perhaps, the president isn't doing enough. but if this storm is as big as it portends to be, expect command centers up and down the coast and the not be very visible at all
